  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 38-year-old male presented with swelling of the right lower eyelid as chief complaint. We detected a tumor, 12 × 10 mm in size, in the center of the lower fornix. A similar tumor was present in the upper palpebral conjunctiva in the same eye. The tumor in the lower fonix was extirpated. It proved to be hydrocystoma histopathologically. This case to be an unusual one since it usually manifests as cutaneous epithelial cyst.
